Today is Festivus!

December 23 is the day of celebration for the alternative holiday Festivus (for the rest of us), popularized on the Seinfeld television series. I’ll be celebrating, but non-traditionally.

I’m fortunate in that I already get to celebrate Christmas with my family and Hanukkah with Jan. Even so, there’s something appealing about leaning on an unadorned aluminum pole and grousing about the disappointments of the past year. Unlike Frank Costanza’s “Airing of Grievances,” mine won’t be personal and face-to-face, but rather a private, solitary observance, with a final thought toward how to do better in the new year.
